If you don't like coke, take the can to a bar & exchange it for a pop of your choice.

I have never heard of any restaurant or bar that would take a food or drink item from an outside source in exchange for another item. It doesn't matter if it is in a sealed container or not.

Because most people won't bother calling and it takes IT resources to maintain that portion of the site - status quo is easier/cheaper for RCI.

I would think the resources to maintain a portion of the website that was running and actually functional would be pretty minimal. Most companies seem to be moving toward making things as self service as possible when it comes to their customer dealings. I also tend to doubt your premise that most people won't bother calling. The issue involves mostly D+ and Pins and I suspect many of them would not hold back on the call.

I get Bud Light in my room onboard, I take it to a bar on ship & exchange it for what I drink. It is not taking it from an outside source plus it is not a food source or a restaurant.

In the past you could usually find a bar on board that would,  doubt they will once cruising resumes

You walk into a bar from somewhere else with a can of anything that can't be traced to where it came from. That sounds like an outside source to me but what do I know. Maybe they would be fine with it. I would prefer that they retail me an item that was not out of the chain of custody of the ship but that might just be the OCD physician in me coming out.

32 posts about a can of coke.  This is like the good old days pre-Covid 😁🙂  I miss those days.

Hopefully it will not, somehow, transition to tipping, diapers in the pool, and shorts in the dining room soon. This is an awesome new CC topic.

Considering the stache you had on that last TA, you must have been getting plenty of exercise making those exchanges.

Jay and the room service guys kept those cold. I was speaking more of the welcome aboard gifts.

I might be missing something but I am not calling them to get 1 can of coke or a bottle of water for diamond level. 

You know the old saying."if it's free it's for me."

It's not even free. 😉 Another perk (we appreciate) for being loyal we've paid for. 👍

I’ve never bothered to call. My last couple of cruises, I had 2 bottles of water in my cabin when I arrived, so maybe that was the Diamond gift.

I actually called this past week as its my first time in November...or February 2021.. as a Diamond. I got my Coke Zero request. I leave out of san juan both times (hopefully) and got the Key so enjoying a nice soda when I arrive in my room will be nice when unpacking.

And, I'm reading it like it's a real page turner!  Your cabin steward  would probably switch it out for you, if the bar won't.  He knows where it came from.

Seeing how we are on the subject of coke, do you think they will have outdated drinks onboard when we get to return?  Don’t think they will be checking the best by date.  

 

That generally only affects diet drinks

I always take our warm cornoa s to the bar and get it swapped and if they don't have it will get a cold VB or Crown Larger 😇

Interesting. I guess I'll do that in the future rather than trying to cool anything down in the cabin refrigerator.

If they did in the past you can forget about them doing it now with Covid.
